Welcome to the website of the Compliance Officer for the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority
The Compliance Officer for IPSA was established by the Parliamentary Standards Act 2009, as amended by the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010.
The Compliance Officer’s remit is defined in statute. It is:
• to review, at the request of an MP, a determination by IPSA to refuse reimbursement for an expense claim, in whole or in part;
• to conduct an investigation if the Compliance Officer has reason to believe that an MP may have received from IPSA an amount that should not have been allowed under the MPs’ Expenses Scheme.
